[Verse 1]
F                         E7       Am7
It's time for me to be on my way I know
         Dm
I've got business to conduct
             F/A       Gsus  G
And I've got places to go
G/F            F                   E7         Am7
   But I can't help looking at her sleeping instead
        Dm7                                F/A         G
Another morning I'll have trouble climbing out of this bed


[Chorus]
F/G     C       C    Dm  C/E    F    G     F/G
Because - she's such a   temp - ta - tion
C      C     Dm   C/E  F     G   F/G
  It's dri - ving me   cra - zy
C          C  Dm    C/E  F    G
  And it's my fas - ci - na - tion
       Am                     D  G/D  D
That's making me act this way ---
    Am7                   D  G/D  F
And I know what all of my friends say
        C/G                       G
They're afraid that I'm losing my touch
                        G/C  C
But she's such a temp - ta - tion

[Instrumental]
G/C    C    E/G#    E+/G#    E/G#  E+/G#  E/G#

[Verse 2]
F                       E7             Am7
I look so tired cause I don't get much sleep
             Dm                            F/A         Gsus  G
And I've got too many commitments that are too hard to keep
      F                        E7        Am7
And I try to be rational and I try to be wise
       Dm7                             F/A         G
But it all gets blown to pieces when I look in her eyes


[Chorus]
F/G     C       C    Dm  C/E    F    G     F/G
Because - she's such a   temp - ta - tion
C     C    Dm    C/E F    G   F/G
  And no - thing can save me
C       C     Dm    C/E   F    G
  But I might find  sal - va - tion
   Am7                D  G/D  D
If I can tear myself away
      Am7                   D  G/D  F
Cause I know what all of my friends say
          C/G                   G
There's a danger in wanting too much
                        G/C  C
But she's such a temp - ta - tion

[Instrumental]
G/C    C    E/G#    E+/G#    E/G#    E+/G#
G/C    C    G/C     C        E/G#    E+/G#    E/G#  E+/G#  E/G#


[Verse 3]
F                         E7        Am7
I should be leaving but I can't cut loose
          Dm                           F/A       Gsus  G
I have my reasons for resistance but I have no excuse
      G/F        F              E7         Am7
And I lose my composure I could use some restraint
        Dm7                        F/A        G       C
I never claimed to be a hero and I never said I was a saint


[Chorus]
      C    Dm  C/E    F    G     F/G
She's such a   temp - ta - tion
C      C     Dm   C/E  F     G   F/G
  It's dri - ving me   cra - zy
C          C  Dm    C/E  F    G
  And it's my fas - ci - na - tion
       Am                     D  G/D  D
That's making me act this way ---
    Am7                       D  G/D  F
And I can just hear all of my friends say
       C/G                           G
Better watch out, you're losing your touch
                        G/C  C     G/C    C
But she's such a temp - ta - tion
E/G#     E+/G#
     Yes she is
E/G#       E+/G#         G/C  C
     She's such a temp - ta - tion
G/C    C
          Yes she is
E/G#    E+/G#
         Oh yes she is
E/G#    E+/G#               G/F  F    Gsus4  F/G  C
        She's such a temp - ta - tion
